Eurocell – the UK manufacturer, distributor and recycler of window, door, conservatory and roofline products – has announced the acquisition of Vista Panels from CorpAcq Ltd. Vista is a major manufacturer of composite and PVC-U entrance doors, with a turnover of approximately £14 million. CorpAcq bought Vista in April 2008.
Vista is said to have been ‘at the forefront of growth in the composite doors market in the UK’, with a strong presence in the social housing and private RMI sectors. It is also the sole supplier of entrance doors to Eurocell and a significant consumer of Eurocell profile. The Wirral based company employs over 100 people nationwide.
Eurocell offers a wide range of PVC-U doors, including French doors, as part of its Eurologik and Modus systems and in-line patio doors in bar length and kit form. It also claims to be the UK market leader in PVC-U bi-fold doors, with the Eurocell Aspect system reportedly still the only product currently available to achieve both BBA and full Secured by Design accreditation.
Keith Sadler, managing director of Vista Panels, said: “I’m delighted. We have forged a close working relationship with Eurocell over 10 years, so we feel like a member of the family already. For all of us at Vista it’s genuinely exciting to be part of a group with such a track record of success and clear roadmap for future growth.”
Patrick Bateman, Eurocell CEO, commented: “Keith and his team run a successful company. But it’s their energy, enthusiasm and progressiveness that makes Vista stand out. It’s logical, therefore, that we wanted them to join forces with us. Together we have a stronger proposition in markets strategically important to both businesses.”
